Phone services were available during the affected times. No comment was made about what caused the technical fault.

BT has advised its customers that if they haven't been able to get online to switch off their device for 10 minutes and then switch it out again.

Broadband has been a long-discussed issue recently, with speeds the major talking point.

BT has spoken about a fibre-optic rollout to all its broadband customers, and is behind installing the first underground wi-fi connection at Charing Cross.
